Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1-1291-23M

The ultrabook phenomenon hasn’t yet done for conventional ultraportables completely. With battery life of 2h15, the X1 may be powerful and well-equipped but we aren’t able to give it more than a three-star rating. The Asus U36SD seems a better choice to us, especially as it costs almost half as much as the X1 (remember, price isn't included in our rating criteria).

Overall, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is a marvellous little laptop that should be at the top of your list if you're after a powerful ultraportable. We like its build quality, keyboard, performance and features; we like its quick boot-up time of only 27sec (including the time to swipe your finger to log in) and also its quick battery-charging time.
